For additional information on PowerBuilder®, see the PowerBuilder Manuals Web site. The PowerBuilder Release Bulletin for your PowerBuilder version may contain additional late-breaking information.
This version of EAServer includes the following PowerBuilder virtual machines (PBVMs):
PowerBuilder 9.0.3 – build 8004
PowerBuilder 10.2.1 – build 9671
PowerBuilder 10.5.0 – build 5063
EAServer 5.5 does not support PowerBuilder versions 7.x or 8.0.4.
If you previously received a private PowerBuilder EBF version containing newer file versions, do not install the PowerBuilder support files included in this version.
If you choose to install the PowerBuilder support files contained in this version:
Before installing this version, back up your existing EAServer\PowerBuilder directory (for example, C:\Program Files\Sybase\EAServer\PowerBuilder) by copying the directory contents to another location.
In the setup program, on the Select Products to Install window, click Customize for Sybase EAServer features, and choose the PowerBuilder Support features.
After the installation completes, ensure that the corresponding PowerBuilder version is installed on PowerBuilder client machines. To run PowerBuilder components in EAServer, the runtime dynamic shared libraries for the version of PowerBuilder in which the components were developed must be available on the server. The PowerBuilder runtime files on the client and the server must be at the same build level. Using different build levels on client and server machines may result in unpredictable behavior or data corruption.
You can download the corresponding PowerBuilder Windows client software from the PowerBuilder downloads page of the Sybase downloads site.
Use the Library Painter to perform a full rebuild of your PowerBuilder application to ensure that all descendant objects are synchronized with their ancestors and to incorporate any compiler fixes in your code.
